HELP no house power

I am planning a trip next week and have no house power anywhere in the coach- no light or radio power at all. When I operate the salesman's switch I hear it click under the entry steps. I have checked all other 12v sources and the generator starts so I know there is juice coming from the house batteries. I looked in the original owner's manual but it is of no help to locate a place to find the problem.
Any suggestions of where to start a search?
Thanks in advance.

If I can't buy it I'll make it.

Don't tell me I can't do it, just tell me it won't be easy.

Find the relay that makes the click when you hit the salesman switch. If there is power on one side coming in, but none on the other side going out, the relay has probably gone. Try activating the salesmans switch while testing. If no outgoing power, you can use a jumper cable to connect the two large terminals. If this restores power, this confirms the relay is gone. You can bypass the relay by putting both large wires on the same terminal. Some people leave it bypassed permanently, but I prefer the ability to shut off my batteries if I want. Try this first, it is usually the problem.

It should look something like this one. https://www.amazon.ca/INTELLITEC-010...dDbGljaz10cnVl

X2 what winneman said. I left mine permanently bypassed because I have a manual disconnect in the electric bay.

I thought by the sound it might be under the chassis but a video on YouTube shows it will be in the power center where the 12v fuses are in a basement bay. I will find out for sure tomorrow and bypass it because there is a master switch in the battery compartment.
Thanks for the advice. I can always count on the experiences of you all.

Well I got to the solenoid but after jumping it no results. It turned out to be the circuit breaker beside it. It does reset but the reset button seems weak.
Does anybody know what part number will interchange to replace it?
I don't want to remove the old one without a new one as it kills the house 12v power while disconnected. I am going south soon and I will keep one handy in case it goes out again.
